REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON NORTHFIELD 
POND PROJECT 



The financial transactions of this project appear else- 
where in the Town Report under the heading "North- 
field Pond Beach." 

The project was to encompass the following: 

Build a bathhouse with sanitary toilets and dressing 
booths; enlarge and improve the beach area; construct 
a picnic area with fireplaces and tables, and to provide 
some funds for lifeguard services. 

Considerable advancement has been made on both 
the planning and development phases of this project. 

The planning was necessarily two-fold in nature. 
First, the long run planning — a look toward the future 
— to envision what might be a reasonable overall devel- 
opment of the area. Our present efforts would be di- 
rected to fit into the overall plan. Second, within the 
limits of our authority and appropriation, the short run 
planning: planning the present construction so that it 
would prove adequate over a reasonable period of time 
and so that it would complement future effort. 

Briefly, the planning encompassed to a greater or 
lesser degree the following: 

Bathhouse design, detail and location, partitioning 
and ventilation of the bathhouse, housing of pumping 
plant, procurement of electrical energy for pumping 
and lighting, water supply for bathhouse and picnic 
areas. Septic disposal, precaution against bacteriological 
contamination of water supply and beach; and compli- 
ance with State laws in regard to safeguarding the pub- 
lic health. 

Fireplace design and location, fuel supply, precaution 
against fire hazard, direction of prevailing winds, exist- 
ence of natural and artificial fire breaks, design and 



49 

location of picnic tables. Compliance with State laws 
pertaining to lighting of fires. 

Beach — cutting of trees, disposal of lumber and 
wood, burning of brush and removal of stumps and 
surface soil, and clearing the water of weeds. 

Construction and placement of rafts and diving 
boards. 

Summer and winter maintenance and supervision of 
the entire area. 

Some thought was given to the impact of the new 
highway upon the area. 

Throughout the planning, an effort was made to 
preserve and if possible to enhance the natural beauty 
of the area. The development was planned so that it 
would some day be worthy to proudly bear the formal 
name of Leroy Glines Park, in memory of the man to 
whom we are indebted for his kindness, generosity and 
foresight in setting aside this area for us. 

The actual development work completed consists, 
briefly, of the following: 

A 10 foot X 27 foot bathhouse has been built, roofed 
and prime coat painted. Six windows have been in- 
stalled and four doors built and prime coated a clear 
seal. 

A flush toilet has been installed in each bathhouse, 
with the necessary piping and venting, and provision 
has been made for future expansion, if necessary. An 
electric pump has been purchased and stored pending 
installation. Arrangements have been made with the 
Public Service Company whereby they will install the 
necessary equipment to deliver electrical energy to the 
bathhouse. Electrical energy charges will be made only 
for actual energy delivered. (No minimum or off-season 
charges). 

A 22 foot deep well has been dug and well point set 
into the well. An excavation has been made for a 500 



50 

gallon Septic tank and the tank has been set into place. 
A beach area 350 feet in length, by 30 feet in depth 
has been cleared of timber, wood, brush, stumps and 
topsoil, exposing a natural sandy beach. 

Two picnic areas have been cleared and a picnic 
table and fireplace have been completed. 

The development has been protected with compre- 
hensive insurance to the extent of $2000. 

In respect to Life Guard Service, the Committee 
suggests and recommends the study and installation of 
the "Buddy System". 

In respect to supervision, the committee suggests and 
recommends that a responsible person be designated by 
the selectmen, with appropriate authority and compen- 
sation, as supervisor of the area during the summer 
season. 

The committee wishes to acknowledge its apprecia- 
tion and sincere thanks to the Foster Construction Co., 
Bud Murphy Construction, Tilton-Northfield Fire 
Dept., Whiteman-Davidson Post 49, American Legion, 
The Golden Rule Farm and the State Forestry and 
Recreation Commissions for their generous contribu- 
tions to the success of this project. 

The Committee further wishes to acknowledge its 
appreciation and sincere thanks to the following in- 
dividuals who contributed most generously: 

James Cunningham, Ralph Fuller, Harold Pettelle, 
Golden Rule Farm Boys, Albert Laplante, Joseph Par- 
ris, Ernest Loomis, Bud Murphy, Chester Davidson, 
Ted Adams, Norman Adams, Eddy Bell, Conrad Eck- 
strom, Paul Marcons, William Sheldon, William Cava- 
naugh, and Joseph Moulton. Slick Brooks, Chester 
Kulus, "Red" Riley, Roy Jordan, Jr., Robert Adams, 
Tommy Murphy, Tommy Pucci, Carl McClain, Wil- 
liam Foster, Kem Perkins and Nig Allen. Otis Haggert,

The Committee wishes to express its thanks to the 
Selectmen for their interest, cooperation, suggestions 
and help in carrying on this project. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MIKE BUCZYNSKI, 

Chairman

YOUR TOWN DUMP 

Use it freely Care for it 

Your town dump has been set up for your personal 
convenience. It provides a suitable place where you can 
dispose of the large amounts of dangerous, inflammable 
waste material and other useless items which accumu- 
late around your household and local stores, brush, 
etc., cut on your property. The town dump has become 
a valuable and indispensable asset in modern com- 
munity life. 

The most successful town dumps are supervised — 
regular days provided for their use and inflammable 
material consistently burned. The town dump which 
receives no attention, where waste material is scattered 
about without supervision of any description, soon be- 
comes a community menace and a liability rather than 
an asset. 

Many people still burn debris around their homes. 
A large number of such fires get out of control causing 
unnecessary damage and expense to the burner. Why 
burn at home? Make use of your town dump and elimi- 
nate the hazard of burning. It will be easier for you ■ — 
personally and financially. 

If, however, you do burn on your premises 

1. Secure a permit from your local forest fire warden 
— the law requires it. The warden won't refuse 
you if conditions are safe. 

2. Be sure to properly supervise your burning. Don't 
leave it. 

3. Make certain your fire is DEAD OUT before 
leaving it. 

Save yourself much possible difficulty.

TILTON-NORTHFIELD RECREATION 
COUNCIL 



After numerous attempts to form a recreation pro- 
gram, the Tilton-Northfield Recreation Council was 
formed in 1956 with representatives from leading or- 
ganizations from both Towns. We are now permanently 
organized and are members of the National Recreation- 
al Association. 

Our programs involved hundreds of children from 
both towns in a wide variety of recreational activity. 
The program is administered by a part-time paid Di- 
rector, under the supervision of the Council. 

The Community Center is held at the Town Hall, 
and is open four nights weekly. Monday evening is 
devoted to games, boxing, badminton, and is open to 
all age groups from the third grade up. Wednesday 
evening is devoted to dance instruction, ballroom and 
square dancing. Friday evening is fifth and sixth grade 
social evening with games and square dancing. Satur- 
day night is devoted to senior socials and involves 
grades seven through twelve. 

Basketball at 10 a.m. is held at the High School gym 
under the direction of Mr. Robillard and Kim Perkins, 
our director. 

An archery program was begun in February of this 
year and is held on Thursday afternoon, between four 
and six p.m. in the Thibodeau Block. Town Hall was 
not available due to possible property damage, and 
office occupancy during these hours. 

In the spring of 1956, four baseball teams in a Town 
league were organized. Fifty uniforms were purchased 
at $2.00 each, from Laconia, so that each player was 
properly equipped. The teams played in other towns 
and were successful in all attempts. Chief coach was 
Tom Andrews. 



57 



In the summer of 1956, a swimming program was 
organized with bus transportation provided to North- 
field Pond. Cork markers were floated for safety and 
a new raft was built. A paid life guard, assisted by 
mothers, provided safety for the sixty to eighty chil- 
dren who used this service three times weekly. It is 
hoped that this year two life guards trained by the 
Red Cross will provide safety and swimming instruc- 
tion. We are particularly grateful to the town of North- 
field for their assistance in improving beach facilities. 

A lighted skating rink was established in December 
of 1956 at the Union School. Unfortunately, due to 
continuous snow storms and ground softness, we were 
unable to fully make use of this facility. 

Since recreation is not only the domain of children, 
but of all age groups, at the time of this writing, a 
Senior Citizen's Club is being formed, under the direc- 
tion of both the Recreation Council and the Episcopal 
Church, which has offered the use of its Hall. The 
Reverend G. Stackley Hurst will help in its direction. 
The problem of Old Age is a serious one in this State, 
which has the highest percentage of this group in the 
entire nation. Senior Citizen's Clubs, or Golden Age 
Clubs answer some of the needs of our aging popula- 
tion by providing a meeting place where they can en- 
joy company, read, play at favorite games, and other- 
wise occupy time fruitfully. 

The opportunities of recreation to express, to create, 
and to find satisfying uses of leisure time are limitless 
in our towns. It is our hope and aim to acquire a build- 
ing and a full time director for this purpose. We are 
grateful to all the organizations which have supported 
us and to many citizens who have given us encourage- 
ment, time and money. 

Respectfully, 

NATHANIEL KESSIN, Chairman 
Tilton-Northfield Recreation Council

Acute and Noncommunicable 
Prenatal and Postnatal 
New Baby 
Office 

Health Service 

Adult 

Infant and Preschool 

Baby Office Conference 

There were 78 new and 251 repeat cases that were 
admitted to the nursing service and 64 new and 187 
repeat cases under health service. 

Twenty trips were made transporting 26 patients to 
clinics, hospitals and specialists. 

Toxoid clinics in cooperation with the State Board of 
Health were held in April, May, June, September, Octo- 
ber, November, and December. Dr. Archie Grevior and 
Dr. Frank Robinson alternated as attending physicians 
at the clinics. Assistants were Mrs. Margery Robert, 
Mrs. Richard Sullivan, Mrs. Lois Caveney, Mrs. Lur- 
line McCook, R.N., Miss Harriet Stone, R.N., and Mrs. 
Willa Downar, R.N. A total of 225 received the Triple 
Toxoid for protection against diphtheria, whooping 
cough, and tetanus, which is given in graduated doses 
a month between treatments, ages 4 months to 7 years. 
Forty-three completed the series of three hypos. Fifty- 
three received Booster hypos that are given two years 
after the first series as an added protection. Sixty-five 
were vaccinated for protection against smallpox. 



68 



Mrs. Lurline McCook, R.N., substituted for the 
District Nurse while she had her vacation. 

The nurse assisted Miss Harriet Stone, R.N. in buy- 
ing, wrapping and distributing gifts in the two towns 
at Christmas. Money and gifts were given through the 
kindness of the Rotary Club, Business and Professional 
Women's Club, teachers of both schools and individ- 
uals. 

Twenty dinners were given by the Elks, American 
Legion, Odd Fellows and Salvation Army. 

This is an opportunity for me to thank the doctors, 
selectmen, nursing board, and the individuals for their 
help in so many ways, also their cooperation and sincere 
friendliness to me throughout the past year. 



Respectfully submitted, 

ALICE FRENCH, R.N.

REPORT OF 
TILTON-NORTHFIELD SCHOOL BOARD 



We have held three meetings to discuss the 1957-1958 
school budget and believe that the real necessities to 
maintain good schools are in the budget and that items 
postponed to future years will not handicap the suc- 
cessful operations of the schools. 

Our proposed budget for 1957-1958 shows an increase. 
The main increase is represented in three items. The 
first is in the principals' and teachers' salaries with an 
increase from $131,007.44 to $145,043.12 representing 
automatic increases under the salary schedule, an addi- 
tional teacher at the high school, and Tilton's share of 
the cost of an additional music teacher. The second 
increase is the salary of a high school secretary so that 
the principal will be free for supervision, administra- 
tion and guidance, — an item of $2000. The third 
increase is in the principal and interest payments under 
bonded indebtedness, since principal payments advance 
from $13,000 to $18,850 and the interest payments are 
increased $1000. Budget increases will be reduced con- 
siderably by expected increased receipts. 

We are proposing a special article in the warrant for 
$8,645 for an oil burner installation at the high school. 
We have estimates that the costs would be $720 for 
conversion of the hot water, $1725 for motorized con- 
trols in the gymnasium, $5700 for a 6200 gallon tank 
and all work and equipment, and $500 for digging. 
We feel that the advantages of oil are well worth the 
cost of this investment, and that we will secure lower 
bids on oil with all the schools using oil. 

We are also requesting the district to allow us to 
use the small balance from the Union School renova- 



85 



tions bond issue and roof installation to modernize more 
classrooms in the old Union School. 

We are very proud of the investment of $46,850 for 
renovations and the $3800 for the roof, for we gained 
three modern classrooms similar to the new building, 
new girls' and boys' restrooms, and a teachers' room. 
We also cleared the school of the old unsanitary base- 
ment toilet rooms, and are saving for education the 
time lost by pupils having to go up and down several 
floors all day. 

The people of the district will be very pleased to 
have the Veterans' Memorial Field in back of the high 
school in operation for recreation and athletics this 
spring. This acquisition will improve the physical edu- 
cation program and the beauty of the grounds. 

We appreciate the contributions from the sixth grade 
of the Union School, the Rotary Club, the Parent- 
Teacher Association, and the prize money from art pu- 
pils of Mrs. Maude Gray, to start a fund for the land- 
scaping of the grounds of the two Union Schools. 

Our policy in starting a fund for band uniforms has 
received contributions from the American Legion and 
the Class of 1956 of Tilton-Northfield High School. The 
Band Booster organization has worked very hard to 
raise funds for this same purpose. 

May we thank the Journal-Transcript for its very 
meritorious policy of developing the annual and perma- 
nent fund for the award of scholarships to pupils of 
Franklin and Tilton-Northfield. We want to thank 
the individuals who have made contributions to this 
worthy cause. 

We express again our appreciation to the Parent- 
Teacher Association for its contributions to the Schol- 
arship Fund and the excellent work of the Room 



86 



Mothers. The Paient-Teacher Association has contribu- 
ted to every worthy cause in the schools. 

May we thank every organization and every individ- 
ual who has helped the schools in any way during the 
past year. We are pleased to receive any suggestions at 
any time for the improvement of the schools. 

We are selected to represent you and carry out poli- 
cies for the best education that your money will provide. 
We appreciate the wonderful support we have received 
from the voters and the taxpayers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alexander G. MacGregor, Chm.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the Members of the School Board: 

Classroom Space — Union Grammar School 

The renovation o£ the old basement rest rooms and 
the coal storage room to three modern classrooms, with 
new boys' and girls' rest rooms on the first and second 
floor, and a new teachers' room, was the most economi- 
cal and practical st.ep for the school district to take. 
The School Board deserves a great deal of commenda- 
tion for recommending this logical development to 
save dollars for the taxpayers. The new roof on the 
school will save the costs each year of roof repairs and 
damage to ceilings.

Teaching Staff 

The 1956-57 budget calls for one additional teacher 
for the high school to cover the increased enrollment. 

Competitive Bids 

Tilton-Northfield proceeded to gain the advantages 
of low costs by continuing to have competitive bids on 
school supplies, oil, renovations, and all articles where 
bids were feasible. 

Finances 

The school district ended the 1955-56 school year 
with all bills paid and another balanced budget. 

Special Achievements by the Tilton-Northfield 
School Board 

The following points represent actions taken or poli- 
cies adopted by the Tilton-Northfield School Board 
that again marked progress in education: 

1. New salary schedule for teachers of $2800 for the 
first year, $3000 for the second, and $100 a year to 
$4000. Sick leave, 5 school days per year for first and 
second years non-cumulative then 10 days a year cumu- 
lative to 30 school days. Teachers were given two steps 
on the salary schedule for the 1956-57 year, represent- 
ing increases of at least $200 for everyone. 

2. Renovation of the Union Grammar School to 
provide three additional classrooms, removal of out- 
moded, unsanitary rest rooms from the basement, estab- 
lishment of modern rest rooms on the first and second 
floors, a new teachers' room, — all well within the bond 
issue of $46,850.00. 

3. Voted to continue the four-year course in agri- 
culture. 

4. Purchased 30 new desks and chairs for Union 
School. 

5. Purchased 9 new electric clocks for Union School.

and Parent-Teacher Association, and money won by 
art pupils of Mrs. Maude Gray, Art Supervisor, from 
contests. 

10. Ended another school year with a balanced bud- 
get. 

11. Adopted policy of establishing band uniform 
fund with the District Treasurer with gifts from the 
American Legion and the Class of 1956 Tilton-North- 
field High School, with a local committee to advise 
School Board on selection when funds are adequate. 

12. Adopted new transportation system with limits

the Teaching of Arithmetic for teachers. 



105 



15. Adopted new school lunch system under which:

weather storms. 

16. Accepted $5200 building aid from the State of 
New Hampshire. 

17. Approved engaging a high school secretary for 
40 weeks a year to allow Principal time for class super- 
vision, guidance and administration. 

18. Purchased furniture for teachers' rooms at 
Union Schools and on December 3, 1956 authorized 
$150 for high school teachers' room — thus giving each 
school the identical amount, with the teachers making 
the selection. 

19. Continued for second year Saturday morning 
recreation and basketball fTom 8:30 to 12:30 Noon, for 
grade and high school pupils. 

20. Sponsored an after-school Music Workshop for 
teachers. 

21. Approved a four-day workshop for Art and 
Guidance from September 3-6 inclusive, with schools 
opening on September 9. 

22. Studied with Public Service Company and other 
electrical representatives the problem of improving 
lighting in the gymnasium and classrooms of the high 
school. 

23. Made a record of being the last school to close 
out the veterans' agricultural course, after all veterans 
in the area desiring instruction had graduated. 

24. Continued to ask bids on equipment, supplies 
and services and save money for the taxpayers.

Additional Music Teacher 

The five towns of Supervisory Union No. 59 voted to 
add a second full-time music teacher for the 1957-58 
school year. The district was losing the music teacher 
at the end of each year for five years in a row, since 
it was impossible for one teacher to teach 1723 pupils in 
five towns, a pupil growth from 1082 in 1944. 

Building Aid Law 

Tilton-Northfield School District will receive 40 per 
cent of all principal payments on bond issues this year, 
thanks to the alertness of Representative Warren Met- 
calf in seeing that the law covered Tilton-Northfield as 
a cooperative district. 

New Foster Homes Bill 

The school district is collecting tuition on children 
in foster homes this year. Representative Warren Met- 
calf worked to secure a fair law for three sessions of the 
legislature. 

Budget for 1957-58 

The budget items for the next year are almost iden- 
tically the same as this year with the following excep- 
tions: 

(a) An increase in principals' and teachers' salaries 
from $131,007.44 to $145,043.12 to meet the costs 
of the salary schedule, one additional high school 
teacher, and Tilton's share of the cost of a second 
music teacher. 

(b) An additional cost of $2000 for a high school 
secretary. 

(c) An increase in the bond payments on principal 
from $13,000 to $18,850. 



Ill 

These added costs are depreciated to some extent by 
increased estimated income from tuitions. 

Appreciation 

May I express my appreciation to the members of 
the School Board, Selectmen, principals, teachers, office 
workers, custodians, bus operators, cafeteria workers, 
and Parent-Teacher Association for all their coopera- 
tion and help during the past year. It is a wonderful 
thing for a joint-community to back its schools and the 
School Board as the people of Tilton-Northfield have 
demonstrated. It is apparent that the people want good 
schools and are willing to pay for them. 

Cordially yours,
